Peace Joy Love

The new Rustic Branches set (Pinefeather Press for Papertrey Ink) has got to be one of my very favorites! As I sat playing with it last night, I realized that it can be used for just about every season/holiday. THIS is a fall card.

And here is Christmas:
I used both the solid and the outline wreath that comes in the set. I stamped the solid in Mellow Moss (SU!), stamping off once. I then stamped the outline in black, just slightly off center from the solid leaves. I colored these leaves with Copic markers. I love the shaded effect it created!

I stamped the berries in Cranberry Crisp (SU!) ink and added Candy Cane Stickles over the top. The words are stamped in the same ink and punched out with a 3/4 inch circle punch. I sponged the edges and then added glitter. The crocheted lace added just the right vintage touch.

I love creating simple holiday cards and this one will be easy peasy to mass produce for family & friends!

Next up... Spring! :o)
